Couldn’t come to London without getting fish and chips. Was a little confused because we only ordered drinks but were brought out a fried fish filet with chips. It was good, a bit stingy on the tartar sauce though.

This was a lovely place to eat traditional fish and chips cooked in vegetable oil (versus beef or lard). Service was nice and quick. Price was reasonable. Location is central. No complaints and would visit again.

For 10 pounds each you get a plate of fish and chips. Drinks are like 1.50 each for soft drinks. If you are looking for a Quick affordable meal go here. A lot of the times its very busy but the waitress really works hard.

The waitress was SUPER RUDE. She refused to let us in just because we went to withdraw the cash and came back. We never said anything offensive but she thought she was “ ignored “??? Hilarious. She never smiled or welcomed us, she was not...More
